Recording and Counting Transactions

Counting Transactions

The Function Tree and the Data Tree are used to model the functionality delivered by the software that will be function point counted. The Function Tree is where the Transactions (Elementary Processes) are recorded. The Data Tree is where the Data Groups or logical files (ILFs and EIFs) are counted. The Attributes Tree and Notes Tree are used for selective profiling and documenting the functionality, (see Types of Hierarchy Trees).

HINT: The lowest level of the function tree (process level) is the level at which function points are assigned. If you do not wish to take the time to model your software then create a single Function node and just list your processes below.
